As Americans recoiled in horror while U.S. lawmakers sheepishly complained and supposedly worked to rein in the Obama administration’s increasingly outrageous usurpation of Congress’ constitutional legislative authority, the White House was releasing a video again boasting of the president’s ongoing unconstitutional plots to bypass the legislature and rule by decree. Even some of the staunchest Obama apparatchiks have expressed alarm over the growing lawlessness and the accelerating destruction of the separation of powers. Lawmakers, though, despite being openly mocked, are essentially doing nothing to stop it.

The globalist establishment, Russian authorities, and the Obama administration are pushing hard for a series of controversial “reforms” aimed at massively expanding the power and resources of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) while further scaling back U.S. influence at the institution. Using various pretexts — and especially the crisis in Ukraine — governments and dictatorships, including Vladimir Putin’s Russia, are even threatening to proceed with the radical plot to empower the IMF whether the U.S. Congress approves it or not.  

Even as the unprecedented uprising continues to grow against the Obama administration-pushed Common Core nationalization of education, one of the key “architects” of the controversial national standards announced an overhaul of the SAT that has critics up in arms. In addition to dumbing down the important test, one of two main standardized exams generally used by colleges for admissions, analysts say the revisions will play a key role in imposing Common Core on all American students — even children who are homeschooled, private-schooled, or in states that have officially resisted the widely criticized national standards.

During a hacked phone call that sparked an uproar and confusion worldwide after being leaked to the media, Estonian Foreign Minister Urmas Paet told European Union foreign policy boss Catherine Ashton that evidence suggests that the same snipers, allegedly hired by opposition forces, may have shot dead both police and protesters amid the Maidan uprising. An estimated 100 people were killed amid the turmoil, with close to 1,000 wounded. While Paet has confirmed that his conversation with the senior EU official was genuine, numerous crucial questions remain unanswered as calls for a formal investigation into the allegations grow louder.

With brazen backing from the globalist establishment at the Council on Foreign Relations, socialist despots, as well as U.S. and international crime syndicates, “former” communist-terrorist “commander” Salvador Sánchez Cerén of the Obama administration-subsidized FMLN appears set to win the presidency in El Salvador’s upcoming runoff election this weekend. If he wins, as is widely expected based on recent polls, the mass-murderer — a close ally of the communist Castro regime in Cuba — will become the latest ex-Marxist guerilla to lead a U.S. taxpayer-funded Latin American national government.

With radical U.S. government and United Nations schemes such as “sustainable development” and UN Agenda 21 being quietly implemented across America at all levels of government under a variety of names and pretexts, lawmakers in the Oklahoma House of Representatives voted overwhelmingly this week for legislation to protect the unalienable rights to private property and due process in the state. The “Oklahoma Community Protection Act,” which would nullify Agenda 21 and other outside assaults on individual rights in the state, now goes to the Oklahoma Senate.

TV anchor and journalist Liz Wahl with the Kremlin-funded RT America network, which has long been accused by critics of promoting Russian government propaganda, sparked a media firestorm on March 5 after announcing her resignation on air during her live show. Among other concerns, Wahl, citing her own family’s escape from Soviet terror to find refuge in the United States, said she could not be part of a network that is funded by the Russian government and “whitewashes” the actions of former KGB man and current president Vladimir Putin.

 

Despite non-stop mega-scandals swirling around World Intellectual Property Organization Director General Francis Gurry, member governments and dictatorships of the powerful United Nations agency may vote to reappoint the disgraced WIPO chief this week for another six-year term.

In an incredible decision that shocked Americans nationwide, a federal appeals court ruled last week that school officials in California acted appropriately and legally by preventing students from wearing T-shirts with U.S. flags during the Cinco de Mayo holiday. According to the panel of judges, despite free-speech rights, the controversial ban on American flags was supposedly needed to prevent “racial tension” from exploding into open violence at the school. Multiple concerns have been raised. The battle, however, is far from over.

The Romeike family, like all homeschooling families in today’s Germany, was suffering from ruthless government persecution under a Nazi-era ban on home education originally used by Hitler to brainwash children with his murderous National Socialist ideology. In 2008, facing the prospect of having their lives destroyed and children abducted, the Christian family fled to the United States seeking educational freedom in the “Land of the Free.” Now, thanks to Obama and the Supreme Court, they must find another home.
